BBC Radio gave Freddie Mercury fans a reason to celebrate this week when they premiered what had previously been an unheard track.
Mercury passed away in 1991 but with the recent release and success of the biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody, new generations have been introduced to his colorful and exuberant style while reigniting the fans who were there the first time around.
The song, Time Waits For No One, was originally produced for a musical by Dave Clark and even ended up number 32 on the UK charts. But the stripped down and honest version BBC played for us is something no one had heard before now besides Clark and Mercury himself.
It’s no surprise that Mercury is still making headlines almost 30 years after his death. As heard in Time, the root of his appeal was a genuine love to perform. This surprise track was no exception.
